Ingredients

¼ cup thinly sliced red onion, separated into rings
Ice water
2 firm ripe avocados
1 medium fresh pineapple
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
½ teaspoon kosher salt

Instructions

  • Soak onion in a small bowl of ice water for 15 minutes to mellow the bite.
  • Meanwhile, halve avocados and cut each half into slices. Peel pineapple, halve lengthwise into quarters, remove the core and cut each quarter crosswise into slices.
  • Whisk oil and lime juice in a small bowl. Drain the onion and pat dry. Arrange half the avocado, pineapple and onion on a serving plate, sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt and drizzle with half the dressing; repeat the layers.
